Mouse Barricade!

A few days ago, I uploaded a clip of a wood mouse blocking one of the entrance holes to clay cavern… to prevent other creatures coming in to steal this stash of food (although there is another tunnel exit as well!).

I just had to open clay cavern and take some pictures… quite hard as it is not very easy to access. 

It is amazing what a little wood  mouse can achieve in one night!
